The Pandemic Is an Intuition Nightmare

  The Pandemic Is an Intuition Nightmare As the U.S. heads towards the winter, the country is going round in circles, making the same conceptual errors that have plagued it since spring.Army ants will sometimes walk in circles until they die. The workers navigate by smelling the pheromone trails of workers in front of them, while laying down pheromones for others to follow. If these trails accidentally loop back on themselves, the ants are trapped. They become a thick, swirling vortex of bodies that resembles a hurricane as viewed from space. They march endlessly until they’re felled by exhaustion or dehydration. The ants can sense no picture bigger than what’s immediately ahead.

(Reuters) - The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) has secured a 20 million pounds ($25.94 million) loan that will help the professional game survive the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the governing body's interim chief Steve Phillips has said.

The loan will be divided among the Cardiff Blues, Dragons, Ospreys and Scarlets and was to be repaid over a five-year period, the BBC said.

WRU Chairman Gareth Davies had previously said the governing body was projecting a shortfall of around 50 million pounds in revenue if no more international rugby could be played this year.

"I am delighted the loan has now come through," Phillips told the BBC. "It has been a long road, probably longer than I thought, but the point is we have got there.

"I will be in touch with our regional colleagues to see ... when funds will flow. The money is divided by consensus within the four regions to satisfy the individual needs."
